Maiden Motion is a locally and woman-owned fitness studio opened in August 2019. We offer Cardio Barre and Cardio Dance classes in our fresh, spacious studio, as well as outdoor and online classes. 

We are located in The Fan area of Richmond, close to the Virginia Commonwealth University campus. The studio is on W. Cary Street between S Harvie and S Randolph. 

We invite you to tour our studio and all its amenities, take a class with one of our talented instructors, and join our Maiden Motion sisterhood.


Maiden Motion’s cardio dance class format and choreography was created by owner Anna Luke. Since 2014, Anna’s role as a barre instructor at Xtend Barre in Alexandria, VA was a side hustle. After a stressful day at work in Washington, D.C., there was nothing better than spending time with a community of strong, kind, and badass women. 

Starting in 2018, Anna started teaching cardio dance classes at the studio using original choreography and a new format for classes. The classes grew a following of clients, and a year into teaching classes her classes had a 6-week waiting list to get a spot.

This is when Anna realized she had something special. A class that clients loved to take and she loved to teach. It was time to turn her side hustle into a full-time business. That’s when Maiden Motion was born, and now has found a home for its first location in Richmond.
